In Another Life

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu

  1. As a child, I loved writing, but I wanted to be an illustrator, drawing was my passion.
    So, an artist.
    A photographer.
    An actor.
    I’m all about the arts!

    • Being an artist was always a given when I was a child. I didn’t approach it like a career/business till much later. I think my earliest aspiration might have been Show Jumping. I grew up riding horses and participating in small shows through our stables. Horses were a large part of my life back then. 🙂

  2. I’d like to be a professional organizer. I really like helping people clear out their houses, it’s weird. 🙂

    • That is different! But there is something soothing about organizing and cataloging. I took a zooarchaeology course during my undergraduate degree where we essentially cataloged a dig site from Charleston, SC. I could see myself doing something like that every day. 🙂
